National Nature Reserves are special places for wildlife and people. As Scottish Government COVID-19 restrictions ease, we look forward to welcoming more of you back as we work to reopen our facilities as soon as safely possible.
On many sites, toilet facilities and visitor centres are still closed, as are many public facilities. Please factor this into your plans before you leave home.
National Nature Reserves (NNRs) are truly inspiring places where you can experience the incredible sights and sounds of our natural world. You’ll find NNRs throughout Scotland, and you’re welcome to visit and enjoy them.
Most reserves have nationally or internationally important habitats and species. Visitor facilities are carefully designed so you can make the most of your visit without disturbing the wildlife or habitats. Trails and information displays – and perhaps a visitor centre or wildlife watching hide – will help you discover what makes each NNR special.
